Error while loading shared libraries after system upgrade

Hello there!

So, after upgrading my Manjaro today I noticed that somethings stopped working.

I have a cron job which should send me an email after run.

But at cronie status I noticed the following error:

/usr/sbin/sendmail: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Does this means that I need to install some extra package? If so, how?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Looks like missing openssl-1.1
This is no dependency of sendmail, indeed.
We’ll have to wait for someone smarter, I’m afraid

Thank you.

Someone knows if reinstalling OpenSSL would help?

just reinstall it and see if it helped…

Just tried a pamac reinstall openssl without success. :frowning:

Which sendmail are you using? There are at least 5 packages in the repo that provides a sendmail program. And probably more in the AUR.

pacman -Qo /usr/bin/sendmail

The sbin folder should be a link to /usr/bin


I am using ssmtp 2.64-17.

But, I did not understand very well, sorry for that. What link do I have to create, please?

There is no such package in the repository. Since it is an AUR package you are responsible for it.

As always with AUR packages, rebuild it against the new libraries.


That’s an AUR package. Read how to maintain AUR packages.

Well, that’s strange, because I think I have not used AUR when installing ssmtp. At least I don’t used any AUR helper or similar. However, I just uninstalled ssmtp through pacman. How could that be?

But I just installed Nullmailer through Pamac and it’s working fine.

That’s also explained in link I gave you.

You can uninstall any package with pacman, no problem.

Great. Thank you very much. I’ll read the article.
